A tricky spot to play from is just off the green in Bermuda grass, the slightly thicker grass beyond the fringe of the green itself. These shots are typically in the range of 10 meters. The instinct is to chip, but in actual fact, a blast shot, as one would play in a bunker, is your best bet. Using a sand wedge, take an open stance and clubface and take a short upright swing. Slide the club an inch or so into the grass behind the ball as you do so, popping it up slightly.
If your ball is lying in any other kind of grass in the fringe or further out, use a stroke that is more like a putt: smooth and with a pendulum-like motion. Hit the back of the ball in order to cut down on the chance that it will suddenly accelerate. Use anything from an 8 iron or pitching wedge, and adjust the shot by simply changing the length of your backswing.
